Default Disc price 2020

Here in Sweden the new Innova tour series disc for 2020 just went up for pre order.

And the Philo Destroyer is the most expensive disc i have seen!
Normaly a innova Star cost around $17 here in Sweden, but that including our 25% VAT

The Philo 2020 Destroyer costs $29!

Last year the Discraft tour series was $24 incl 25% VAT in Sweden. . .and the 2020 McBeth line is at $20

Looks like Innova/Discmania Tour Series is a few $ more than other brands. . .at least here in Sweden.

Big contract give more expensive discs in 2020?

Careful. Complain about disc prices 'round these parts and you'll get labeled a "hater."

Not really complaining...more making an observation

I am stuck somewhere between "a higher entry point will help bring legitimacy to disc golf" and "there is no way a frisbee should cost $$". Personally I don't feel motivated to buy a disc once it gets over the $20 price point unless it is super limited or unique.

I am surprised the P MC B discs are $20 there. $20 is what I find them for in the US

Kind of weird that the Innova 2020 disc doesn’t cost the same..the philo destroyer cost more than the Teebird and the Gator is less than the Teebird...why not give them all the same price? I think it looks odd to set different prices on the “players”

Yes considering that we have 25% VAT included in the price, disc prices are not that bad over here....most things are expensive in Sweden, but for some reason disc are not one of them
But it’s very expensive for me to buy disc from the US

Discs should be free just like it is to play.

New shimmer star tour series is 27,90€ ($30) in leading dg chain store in Finland, meanwhile innovastore.fi sells those same discs for 22,90€ ... and that's without any discount. Disc stores are testing the waters and trying to ride the hype train.
